May Segment: Staff Spotlight

As part of a new addition to our website’s blog, we are adding a feature segment every month called Staff Spotlight. Each month we will feature one of our instructors, with some get to know information so our Studio E families can learn more about the instructor their child has lessons with, or an opportunity to learn more about the incredible staff we have at Studio E.

 

This month’s featured staff spotlight is: Robin!

From humming as a baby to receiving awards as a young performer, music has been a driving force in Robin’s life. Robin has been pursuing a career in music for over half of her life. She started teaching music in a high school co-op class, and continued to expand her skills in college with the ‘Teaching Methods’ class. She currently teaches pop, opera, jazz, rock, classical, RCM and musical theatre in voice, all genres of flute, all methods of piano, and Theory. She has been teaching professionally since 2009. In her free time, she studies guitar and song writing. Robin and her students work hard together to reach their goals. Robin loves sharing all the wonderful things about music through her teaching. Each student, no matter the age, has a special place in her heart. Here is our question series with Robin!

 

Q: When did you decide to pursue music as a career?

Robin: I didn’t decide to pursue music. It has always been music or nothing for as long as I can remember!

 

Q: What is your zodiac sign?

Robin: Libra

 

Q: Who is your favorite solo musician or artist?

Robin: P!nk (aka Alecia Moore)

 

Q: What is your favorite hobby outside of music?

Robin: …wait what? Is that even a thing?! Just kidding. I have lots of hobbies, but my top 3 would have to be coloring, Anime/Manga, and Harry Potter…have I shown you my wand yet?!

 

Q: What is one tip you have for your students that helps them practise even when they are dreading it?

Robin: Nobody likes practicing (I have those days too), but it makes a difference and helps us grow.

 

Q: What is one instrument you would like to learn that you do not already know how to play?

Robin: Alto Saxophone or Violin!

Each month we will feature one of our instructors, with some get to know information so our Studio E families can learn more about the instructor their child has lessons with, or an opportunity to learn more about the incredible staff we have at Studio E.

 

This months featured staff spotlight is: JESSICA!

Jessica is our DiscoverE ECE and Rockband Instructor. She teaches children between 0 to 7 years of age through an interactive and fun introduction of music that helps with their development in a variety of areas. In teaching rhythm, music and movement, she helps them learn to sing songs with instruments and uses dynamics, tempo and emotion to enhance learning, literacy and motor skills! They also get an opportunity of alternating between several instruments and disciplines such as guitar, drums, percussion instruments, piano, and voice. As an ECE she is excited to combine her love of music and passion for education in order to aid students while they explore the world of music! Here is our question series with Jessica!

 

When did you first become interested in music?

Jessica:  My dad always played guitar for me as a baby, my parents say I was humming and singing before I learned how to talk! 

What is the first instrument you decided to try to learn?

Jessica: I started singing when I was 6 and started having an interest in guitar around the same time.

What is something you have been meaning to try out (food, hobby, etc) that you haven’t gotten around to?

Jessica: I’ve always wanted to get more into cooking.

What is one interesting fact about you that most people may not know seeing you as a music teacher?

Jessica: I don’t have many facts my students wouldn’t know, but, I eat A LOT of food. When I’m not teaching, I’m eating. I always have snacks. 

What is an artist/genre that you like that your students may not expect that you would like?

Jessica: Jazz!

What is one thing about teaching that makes it enjoyable to you?

Jessica: As much as I love teaching, I also love that every day the children teach me something new! It’s amazing how much you can learn when you work together in the class room.
